Kelly Rutherford carries Hermes
Kelly Rutherford really loves Hermes. In fact, she loves it so much that she named her son after it. Literally, his name is Hermes. You can’t make this stuff up, people. And I thought it was bad when people named their little lap dogs “Gucci…”
Anyway, considering the overwhelming amount of Hermes handbags that her character Lily Van Der Woodsen carries on Gossip Girl, like the ostrich Hermes Birkin here, she must think that the role was made for her. And maybe it was – she plays the cold, often-divorced mom of reformed wild-child Serena with quite a bit of aplomb. Maybe the producers are paying her in Birkins as her motivation.
